UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Date: April 11 2009
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: At least 13
Shape of objects: Unable to see clearly but from the ground they looked spherical
Weather Conditions: Cloudy but clear
Description: Orange objects coming from the skyline with a gap of a few minutes between them occasionally 2 together. at one time there were 5 all in a line with a good space between each of them, and then they would disappear and some more would come. 2 or 3 of them seemed to drop a lighted object down to earth. Then there was only one left in the sky, which gradually disappeared.
UFOINFO Note: As with other similar reports I asked the witness to have a look at the UFO Balloons website to see if this is what might have been seen and received the following reply:
After looking at the video, I am still unsure, but they possibly could have been balloons that I saw, I tried to see them with binoculars, but they were not strong enough to see them clearly. The balloon video does not actually show them in the sky that I can see, only setting them off.
I was certainly convinced last night that they were UFOs but the ballons are a possible explanation.
Sorry to have troubled you.
